Kendrick Perkins: ‘Me and Tyson Chandler Never Got Along’

One game into the Western Conference Finals, and we already have some good storylines developing. ESPNDallas brings the info: “Kendrick Perkins and Tyson Chandler can’t even agree on whether there is bad blood between the big men… ‘Me and Tyson never got along. I’m serious,’ said Perkins, whom the Thunder acquired in a trade deadline deal with the Boston Celtics. ‘He don’t like me, I don’t like him and that’s pretty much how it’s been. Everybody always looks at me as kind of like a dirty player if you’re on the opposite team, but he’s just as dirty as anybody else.’… ‘I have nothing against him,’ Chandler said of Perkins. ‘He won a championship with the Boston Celtics, and that’s where I’m trying to take my team. I mean, I’ve got respect for him, what he was able to accomplish. But all the chippy stuff, the after-the-ball stuff, that’s all nonsense and I’m not going to get involved with it.’”

    Perk say that about every other center. He just needs to focus on bball and leave all the theatrics alone. He’s playing bad and on top of it he’s doing extra curricular crap.

    ROFL at the different responses. Reminds me of the Simpsons:
    Moe: “Listen, I don’t like you and you don’t like me. But we both want to stop Homer from shooting the turkey.”
    Lisa: “You don’t like me? I like you.”
    Moe: “You do? Then I like you too. Here, have a towelette.”

    Does Perkins actually get on with ANYONE that doesn’t wear green?….

    Kevin Durant, Westbrook, Harden, ….

    He’s probably taking his frustrations out on Tyson because he doesn’t have Andrew Bynum or Pau Gasol around to harass!!

    Well, I don’t think Chandler cares. He’s far more talented and is actually a great defensive player. Perkins is a regular double double machine. And just cause the Celtics are crying over him still doesn’t mean he’s anything but a gremlin looking blimp who’s dirty.

    Perkins has never had a happy moment on the court. Ever.

    Love the simpsons reference!

    Thats because CHANDLER is SUPERIOR to PERKINS..

    Perkins really believes that he still is the great intimidator.
    He was intimidating when he was part of that intimidating Celtics defense. Right now he is like a small dog. He just barks at everybody but can’t really back it up.

    Perk isnt even a double double machine…Hes never even averaged 9 boards, individually and talent wise hes actually not in chandlers league. Hes a tough interior defender on guys like bynum, gasol and dwight but the match-up with the mavs doesnt have a proper back to the basket big for him to rough up and chandlers out hustling him and hustle is really all he can bring.
